As you might expect, the literature of England is characterized by a fair amount of rain, but what’s interesting is that the Victorian era had the rainiest literature of all. In The Guardian, a look into the history of downpours and drizzles in English narratives. (via Arts and Letters Daily)

    Over the years, I developed a theory about why writers are such procrastinators: We were too good in English class. This sounds crazy, but hear me out.

    Do you know what a quenelle is? It’s fucking ridiculous, is what it is: a new salute—a cutesy spin on the Sieg Heil!—that’s tearing across the European memeosphere as an expression of various sentiments, but mostly anti-Semitism.

    Yes, a Nazi-style salute. In Europe. Again. And it’s not just a few dozen idiots. People are doing it, and supporting the forces behind it, in the tens of thousands.

    Some of my unease about Medium, which is shared among my peers, comes from my perspective: For now, anything I read on Medium is inseparable from the essential weirdness of the fact that the piece is on Medium, instead of on a publication’s site, or on a personal site, or on Tumblr.

    Tom Hiddleston reads When You Are Old by W. B. Yeats

    When you are old and grey and full of sleep,
    And nodding by the fire, take down this book,
    And slowly read, and dream of the soft look
    Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep;
    How many loved your moments of glad grace,
    And loved your beauty with love false or true,
    But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you,
    And loved the sorrows of your changing face;
    And bending down beside the glowing bars,
    Murmur, a little sadly, how Love fled
    And paced upon the mountains overhead
    And hid his face amid a crowd of stars.

    Chills.

    Christmas Carol for today: “All That I Want” by The Weepies

    Out in the harbor
    The ships come in, it’s Christmastime
    The kids all holler carols ‘cross the water
    Stars that shine

    All that I want, all that I want
